The launch of Ghanaian actor, Adjetey Anang, self-titled memoir, Adjetey Anang; A Story of Faith, Imperfection, and Resilience, drew the attention of some of Ghana’s biggest names in politics, entertainment, music, and film.
The renowned Ghanaian actor known for his remarkable achievements in the film and entertainment industry released the memoir on Saturday, July 8, 2023, to mark his 50th birthday in a grand manner.
The multifaceted event at the Skybox Event Centre saw the likes of Member of Parliament for North Tonga, Okudzeto Ablakwa, Presidential candidate, Hassan Ayariga, Shirley Frimpong-Manso of Sparrow productions, Lydia Forson, Fifi Coleman, Van Vicker, Jackie Appiah, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku, Nana Ama McBrown, Martha Ankomah, Eddie Nartey and many others.
The event also saw the launch of his foundation, One In A Million, which will engage one hundred influential individuals, including Anang’s colleagues, mentors, and their families, to contribute 1 Cedi per day for a decade for special causes.
The goal according to the award-winning actor is to accumulate a substantial fund that can be utilized to offer free medical screenings and assistance to beneficiaries across all regions of Ghana.
“I also will be unveiling my foundation and the focus is on mothers and children. There are some children who have never accessed medical care so we want to offer free screening. The name of my foundation is one in a million. 1 in a million because I’m gathering one hundred influencers who will contribute 1 Cedi per day for 10 years,” he shared on Onua FM, a few weeks back.
He also revealed the broad reach of the foundation’s initiatives, aiming to positively impact communities beyond Accra, reaching every region of Ghana.
“These 100 influencers are people I’ve worked with, my mentors and their families. At the end of the 10th year and it’s not focused on just accra, it’s every region,” he pointed out
Anang who played ‘Pusher’ in ‘Things We Do For Love’ said the team has also initiated discussions with the National Health Insurance to oversee the financial aspects of the foundation.
“We’re speaking to the National Health Insurance to take care of the cash so nobody’s money is abused so that all the beneficiaries can benefit from it,” he said.
